Matthews finished with 11 points (3-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two blocks, two steals, one board and one assist in 29 minutes of a 103-94 loss to Miami on Tuesday. Matthews was active early, helping his team grab a 28-19 first quarter lead. But Matthews faded along with the rest of the Bucks in the second quarter, and the deficit proved too much to overcome. Matthews' first season back in his home state proved to be a unique one, as the NBA season faced a mid-season postponement followed by a restart. But the Bucks never could recapture their flow in Orlando, leading to an early exit.
Matthews (hip) will not play Thursday against Memphis. A sore adductor will cost Matthews a second consecutive game as the Bucks close out seeding play. Milwaukee appears to be playing most of its regulars, with the exception of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who will serve his one-game suspension.
Matthews will not play Tuesday against Washington due to a sore right adductor Matthews saw only two minutes of action in Monday's loss to Toronto, so the adductor issue is something to monitor. The Bucks play one final seeding game Thursday against Memphis before the playoffs begin next week.
Matthews (calf) is not on the Bucks' initial injury report ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Heat. The veteran was held out of Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn with a sore calf, but all indications are that he'll return to the lineup Thursday as Milwaukee looks to snap a two-game skid.
Matthews is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Nets due to a sore calf. Matthews apparently picked up the injury during Sunday night's loss to the Rockets, in which he finished with just three points on 1-of-6 shooting. It's likely nothing serious, however, and the East-leading Bucks have no reason to expect Matthews to play through any level of discomfort.
